Luxembourg – Day 19

11 Jul

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

I woke up to the sunshine and the sound of traffic outside our balcony.  The 8:15am alarm hadn’t gone off yet, so we already had a head start to our day. I packed, showered (they had a window in their shower!), and then we went down for a French breakfast of toasted French bread and an assortment of spreads. I never thought chocolate on bread would be good until today.  It was delicious 🙂 We just packed up after that and went down to have the sweet lady check us out of the hotel. Then we zipped off  to downtown Luxembourg City again. No shopping today though. All shops close on Sundays.  So we found a parking garage and started off. The tiny map we grabbed in a brochure wasn’t helping us out much.. But we stumbled upon a double Decker city tour bus. So we got our ticket and hopped on top! We were glad we did the tour, because we had no clue where to go. It was interesting to hear some of the history that is in Luxembourg. The tour was a little less that an hour long and after we got back, we slowly made our way back to the parking garage. Although..when we stopped at some public restrooms next to a playground, I seemed to have a little trouble with the lock on the way out…Then a nice man rescued me 🙂

Turns out these underground parking garages take you all the way to the bottom in order to get out on top. So we went down 5 levels before we began going up again. The lights in the lower levels were out and there were no other vehicles around and it. was. scary. We locked our doors and made it out of there as fast as we could!

We found our way out of the city after that and shortly after we found ourselves having to detour through the French countryside. We saw some absolutely beautiful little towns on the way. One is never quite the same as another. We eventually stopped right outside one of the villages where we found a picnic table  next to a pasture of cows and some wheat fields and sat down to have a lunch of protein bars and water. It was the perfect day for a picnic anyways and the scenery was as always, nothing short of beautiful. I fell asleep not long after being in the car again and slept until we were almost home. I talked to Mom and Dad for a while before they went to church and right afterward we had our circle time. Leftover soup for supper tonight and it was still just as good as before 🙂 Tonight’s feature – The Man in the Iron Mask. Claps for Leo.
